I have visited this restaurant many, many time since the era of John Tovey. The location is upscale and spectacular, without being too formal. The views over Lake Windermere are spectacular. The food is modern and thoughtfully prepared and the service is prompt and friendly....More

I took my elderly mother and two others to Miller Howe for afternoon tea. Oh dear from start to finish it was not good. They weren't ready for us, the staff were unwelcoming, the food was shabbily presented, sparse and extremely uninspiring. The sandwiches were...More

If the Lakes are the jewel in the crown of Britain’s countryside then Miller Howe must be the Queen. Why? Because this restaurant is wearing that jewel well. With the most stunning views possible over the beautifully English Lake Windermere, you probably wouldn’t notice if you were sat on a polyester sofa and served up a Kwiksave ready meal. However, take your eyes off the windows for just a moment and you’ll notice that the surroundings are comfortable, good looking and with somehow more than a little taste of Italy. Although A La Carte options are available, most diners will delight in the Set Menu which boasts the very finest dishes using quality British ingredients.
